i think PROCOMP make muddies and all terrains to suit the 17s no1 so possibly give them a ring prices are generally comparible to BFGs and are a good tyre in my opinion(have muddies on my 100TD)and very happy cheers Paul

I had them and was not happy with them. I would not recomend them for a vehicle the weight of the TD100.

Thanks. Still curious if you had the LT version fitted? While wear factor is quicker on a Cruiser sidewall should be tougher on LT...

I asked for an LT when I could not get BFG AT's fitted at delivery. I was assured D694's were LT but I could not find any LT designation in the tyre wall codes when I looked so assume they are not. I did get 20,000KM out of them including a Simpson crossing before the dramas began but the tyre wear was the last straw.

New Patrols are also 275/65/R17. You would reckon Mr BFG would get his act together and start making tyres in that size.

No.1,

So what's wrong with the Dunlops for the missus to go shopping? She's hardly going to stake a tyre at Woolies!

Kind regards

BTW is it white?

Now that will depend if she lets you have it I'm sure. But if you have a favourable prenup otherwise it's half hers. Sorry mate! Also if it aint white then she has already claimed ownership, but if you stuck with the EO expert advice and got white it would be all yours no matter what.

Kind regards

Oh I'm fine with that but what about her lawyers? Hope it's in your name? - not the business name or her name. It's not white is it?

As a director of the business she'll want it and being her choice of colour I'd say it's hers. If you got a white Nissan she would say "take it" and you could call it yours. My bride also likes MY 4WD so I'm in the same boat but like you we are also happily married (too hard to be anything else).

I'm impressed No.1 - you were able to exclude her from the business interests. No wonder you are a succesfull businessman with such intelegent estate planning. I will pay more attention to your business advice.

It's good to clear the air and get it out in the open - we want to help there that's all. Missus No.1 will appreciate you more for that interaction and I can see another little No.1 on the way. See how much benefit this can have.
